Ajax (High Priest and Toparch) High Priest and Toparch of western Cilicia from c. 10 AD to 15 AD.
Octavian divided rule of Cilicia between Amyntas of Galatia and the principality of Olba, which was ruled by Teucrid high priests. Ajax ruled Olba and its territories as high priest and toparch under Augustus and Tiberius, c. 10 - 15 A.D. Perhaps this dynasty of high priests claimed decent from the Ajax or Teucer, heroes of the Trojan war.
